might remember them from last week. in 2005, think back to hurricane katrina. in 2001, president bush appointed joseph, the chief of staff in texas and the 2000 campaign manager, but no emergency management experience. under president bush, the number of political appointees went from 27-38. he brought in michael brown, his college roommate. now in 2003, michael brown took over fema. he also had no previous emergency experience, the u.s. commission of the international an arabian horse association which was his qualification. hurricane katrina hits new orleans, brown took control of the relief effort, but it was a disaster both literally and figuratively. you may remember president bush said, you're doing a heck of a job. it became clear that he could not handle it, and he was replaced by the coast guard, a career professional that handle the and a good job. of course, the katrina disaster was not all brown's fault. the appointment is an illustration of the problem, an increasing number of appointees, the lack of emergency management experience, layers of political appointees over car
hurricane katrina they spent it on gucci bags and massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. shopping is the key concern for the literally millions of people affected by the storm. what could be worse for states like new jersey than the congressional vote on how fema should spend its money? king was one of 11 members to vote against providing additional disaster relief to the victims of hurricane katrina back in 2005. >>> on a more positive note, chris christie's wish comes true. it's no secret he's a fan of bruce springsteen. over the years springsteen has not returned the love until last night. he reached out to the victims of hurricane sandy and then some. listen to this. we're a band that can't separate from the jersey shore. we'll send this out to all the people working down there, the police officers, the firemen, and also to the governor who has done such a hard job this past week. well, there you have it. the romance, the bromance, isn't as one-sided anymore. >>> also, what part of the presidential election got this 4-year-old col
call that had to be made in new orleans after katrina with mardi gras. >> huge debate. the difference was -- the storm in august. mardi gras was in february. months between. now days between. >> i know. >> i don't know. i don't know. a tough call here. it is going to go on. the mayor said it is. those of you coming into the city to do it. run hard. run well. we'll be back with more after this. >> announcer: this is abc's "world news now." informing insomniacs for two decades. >>> this morning on "world news now," a presidential promise of help in the heart of the hurricane devastation. >> president obama and new jersey governor chris christie stood side by side as they toured the destruction and talks with the victims of sandy. it's thursday, november 1st. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >>> good thursday morning, i'm sunny hostin. paula faris is on assignment. >> always good to have you as the co-pilot here. >> so good to be here. >> there's power here and there's heat which is good. >> yes. both of which i do not have at home. >> soldiering through. welcome b
. staten island, new york we are hearing comparisons to katrina and its aftermath. this is why. look at the trash piling up. dirty water flooding the streets and a stench hanging in the air. people are hungry, they are cold. they are look for things to eat. clean water, dry clothes. their homes swept off the foundation by surging waves or swallows by soggy marshes. they are expressing a growing sense of anger. >> come here and walk into these streets where the water is this high and put waders on and see what it's about. not the outskirts. there is a lot of people trapped in here still. >> i don't have anywhere to go. i don't have no clothes. all the clothes i have on they gave to me at the center. >> 22 years in my home and i lost it. megyn: you can donate to the red cross if you want to help these folks. by the numbers, 19 of the 41 people who died in new york city lived on staten island. three of them were children. hundreds of homes have been destroyed and the power is out for every one in 10 staten island residents. >> reporter: the residents of staten island are calling their c
of hurricane katrina. this is a response and a relief effort that is woefully inadequate. we have people without gasoline. we have people without power. now it's almost a million and a half people. came down about a half million from the weekend. it is a very tough job. but let's be clear. we have an emergency situation here in this federal government is not responding. it is not doing what it should help. we are supposed to have gasoline supplies and hundreds of thousands of people -- they don't have power to run their generators. we are supposed to have gasoline for the people, the motorists, the commuters, those were trying to go about their work lives without heat and without power in their homes and their kids are not in any case to be in school. and we have a president who is not responding to the emergency. he is campaigning. i understand the conflict. but my goodness, part of what he is required to do and part of what this governor, chris christie should be thanking him for, is actually being effective. that hasn't happened at. megyn: lightning chris christie was so fawning? lou:
on what? >> as we just heard, damage totals are expected to be around 50 billion. katrina around 150 billion images recorded, and out of those damages about 600,000 cars are flood damaged in katrina. we're just looking at that, the areas affected by sandy had a higher population density, higher vehicle population density about 9 million vehicles registered in the area, much higher than katrina, much higher population of dealerships in the area affected by sandy, so you look at those figures had come up with what we saw a very good estimate between 100-250,000. dennis: if people in the area hit by the storm are spending money to fix the storm damage they don't have as much money to spend on used cars. >> very true. what is happening right now, on the national level, the impact in the area might even be more than that. we're in a demand for used vehicles in that supply is very tight and demand has been very strong because consumers had replace vehicles, which by the way the average age of vehicles at a record high. contact the marketing economic conditions that aren't that great. suppl

through more big disasters and dealt with -- >> katrina included. >> the relationship between the president, whether it's president obama or president romney, has just begun. it's going to go on for years and years and years. the easy stuff is what we're dealing with now. the really complicated rebuilding, tough decisions, big authority of the federal government. christie would have been a fool to poke his finger in obama's eye. you know, your network criticized me after katrina for not criticizing bush, for not saying bush and him are doing a bad job. look, a, they did more right than wrong, but, b, when they're going to be your partner for years, you know, you praise in public and criticize in private. that's the way i was taught. >> did it seem -- he could have said the president did a great job. moving along now. but did he take some time. >> i think this is a very good week for barack obama because he did a good job. good government is good politics here. he did a good job. >> there's still a lot of people in a lot of hurt without electricity who are still told that can't
health there. you and i have talked a lot about hospitals in the wake of katrina. why do people put the power in the basement? it seems to me the first thing that's going to go in a flood or any kind of, not even a major a storm, but a minor storm, is your basement's going to flood. >> this has been a bit of a technological whack-a-mole here, because we realized after katrina, and even after the blackout of 2003, we had to do something about backup generators in hospital. and so we moved the generators upstairs, but left the fuel pumps down in the basement. so we fixed the initial problem and have a secondary that no one seems to have thought about. >> okay, is that just complete stupidity, or is that, listen, it's financially expensive and people make the gamble, we're not going to invest the money and hope for the best. >> i think in this case, it was not paying attention to all of the details. i think people were well meaning. i don't think there was any sort of gross negligence here, except that somebody forgot an essential detail, in a situation that requires extraordinarily ex
and robust enough to respond to three nuclear events in the same day. it is clear from hurricane katrina and hurricane sandy this is a passing slow incompetent bureaucracy utterly overwhelmed it in new orleans. what it does to president obama we as a nation need to demand a very, very dramatically over hauled department. as to obama's situation i think he probably peaked about three hours after chris christie you go hugged him. he looked bipartisan looked like the commander-in-chief. he was doing the president's job not the candidate's job. it is accelerated by this absurd comment about the revenge. i am sure the president will take it back as he could. it is so jarringly destructive and i think it sent such a bad signal to most americans about how small minded and mean spirited president obama was capable at times. >> i was stunned at the revenge comment. mitt romney hit the right cone said no i am running for the american people. let me run this again. i want to run them side by side. it is so glaring the difference. you can see in their closing arguments here the president is on the
the potential return of fema trailers like those used in the wake of hurricane katrina and used not without a lot of controversy. >>> gas lines hours long stretched through the weekend across the tri-state area. in some cases, stations using gas-powered generators to pump fuel out of the ground. it could be several more days before the country's fuel shortage is resolved. in new york city where 145,000 residents still without power. yesterday's marathon was canceled. that happened for the first time in 40 years. but it didn't stop hundreds of runners from doing the right thing, showing up where the race was supposed to begin in statin ilan. instead of a marathon, they ran a relief effort, jogging through neighborhoods to help dig out debris and offer supplies and good for them. i actually went to staten island on saturday, myself, got a firsthand look. you jump on the staten island ferry, catch the s-78 bus. if you want to help, they could use a lot of hands. it is absolutely wiped out. the first thing you notice is the neighborhood coming together. people literally emptying the contents of
city. however if you go back seven years to hurricane katrina the news then about that storm was how president bush and fema and michael brown and everybody failed. you never heard about mayor nagan and governor belong could he. now the situation is reversed and it's bloomberg taking the blame for the storm and not doing better for it as opposed to president obama. if this were bush right now you'd be seeing a split screen of bush campaigning, and then people being miserable in their wrecked houses back home in queens. jon: what about that? we heard from david lee miller earlier today, a hispanic woman getting up there in years complaining how absolutely miserable it is where she's live. why should that not be president obama's fault as it was president bush's fault? >> katrina was a much larger national issue than with all due respect to queens. jon: why? >> because katrina was -- the magnitude of katrina in terms of what it represented nationally was not specific to a neighborhood in new york. overall the reaction to sandy has been -- jon: so the president is not -- i mean he's the
, of course, the next year faced katrina and a collection of disasters. how does the president keep his head down, not be swept away by the moment, and avoid the mistakes of his four predecessors? >> well, i think what is so sobering -- and this isn't a grand historical vision or a legacy moment -- because for him, the reality is going to be around 1:00 today when he comes out and says what he would do about the fiscal cliff. we can all laugh about the term as much as any of you, but the reality is really grim. when i started going through the numbers yesterday of just what taxpayers -- ordinary taxpayers -- are going to face, i had no idea that it wasn't just the bush tax cuts, even though i follow this stuff pretty closely, the minimum tax hitting, of all people, the most people who will be affected by the amt kicking in if congress were to let it happen. and you've been there, so you know that they'll blink at the last moment. but the most people of any state live in new jersey who are the middle-income people, people who make $75,000 a year and have two children will have to pay $4,000 m
wildest imagination see the destruction. i mean, this is our katrina. you know, unfortunately, those poor people went through this x number of years ago, ten years ago. now it's our turn. and you don't know where to begin, where to start. i got good friends and family. everybody has been coming down trying to help me out, trying to do whatever we can to move ahead and it's confusing. it's mind boggling. it's uncertainty. it's my life. the restaurant was my 30 years of adult life. my home. i lost everything. >> can i ask you, you've been frustrated with what the insurance will and will not cover. you said you had hurricane coverage, but that will not take care of your damage. >> in 30 years of business here, i've never had one drop of water. and we have had many, many, manies storms. irene last year which pelted us with 13 inches of water. i never had a problem with water. okay. this wasn't a flood issue per say. this was a tsunami issue. how do you prepare for something like that? >> gregg: if you want to help the recovery efforts, it's easy to donate not red c for example. you can go on-
to bail out new orleans after hurricane katrina, belmar, new jersey is returning the favor. >> get this water out of our town and back in the atlantic. >> reporter: belmar mayor said sandy swept his town over seven city blocks. what sandy did not flood she basically trashed. >> now we're in a recovery phase, getting the water out. at the same time we have heavy machine engineer that's moving the debris. >> reporter: the streets are being cleared. the sand trap left behind is being erased. >> we're trying to get power to the laundromat. >> reporter: nobody has electricity so the mayor had charging stations installed. >> council is receiving distribution. >> reporter: he's running the distribution center that's providing warmth and food that some people in bell hard have. >> what's it took at home right now? >> my home is cold. my brothers are hungry. >> as you go out into belmar with your assigned duty. >> reporter: everybody here has a job. >> i make grill cheese sandwiches. >> reporter: the mayor is telling restaurants to open and give their food away for free. >> we're here for t
katrina where it was failures on the part of the federal government's response. you don't have that negative aspect. you have chris christie, the most visible republican in the country. certainly according to the media one of the better liked ones. he's out there using his platform to vouch for the leadership of the democratic president. i think that makes a powerful statement to people. i think having bloomberg weigh in makes a pretty strong statement to people as well. and i think just -- it's tough to quantify this. i think it's impossible to quantify this. to me it creates this noise that's sort of in the air, in the media air, and sort of in the conversational air in this country. it creates noise that i think takes wavering voters who maybe were soft obama supporters or soft romney supporters, i could see it moving them, you know, a small share of people, but i could see it moving people toward obama making them more comfortable with the idea of re-electing him. if it's a 1% or something, small, but it's big in the context of this election. >> in the context of endorsemen

-generated." it was almost like here you had the media championing the idea of bipartisanship, but with hurricane katrina they went in the opposite direction and they wanted demonization. >> help me out, what is good about it? what is good about the response? people are still dying. bob: it has six days. >> eight, but who is counting. >> my count it was last monday but maybe it is six days. the point is what he said here was a fair thing on say, they have done a remarkably good job, it was 8.5 million people without electricity and now it is 3 million. he deserves to get credit. why not? why not give him credit? >> what did he do? governor chris christie said you do a good job, thank you. what does he do? we are still looking for people. >> people are still looking for fema, and i am surprised they are applauding president obama for spending a lot of money. he has been green lighting spending for four years in office. he has a black belt in green light spending. >> presidents do not have a lot to do with state and local recovery and they shouldn't. if you have competent state and local government to hand
to the response to hurricane katrina. what president obama did when he came into office was strongly and unapologetically assert the government's role in dealing with our problems. in a wide array of he car market, small businesses, tax reform. he that at great personal, political risk. and what he got back in return was, a very strong attack on the notion that we're in this together and that government has a role to play. first in the grass roots of the tea party on the ground and then in the air in what you documented, martin, and what the audience knows, one of the most well-funded attacks in the history of american politics. what i think happened last night is more than just a re-election of barack obama as a man that people trust to lead our country, which is, i ink, good. i think something deeper happened. i think there was an endorsement of the notion, liberal notion, that government has a role to play here and can help everyone and even the playing field. i think we're in an historic period today. >> people said yes. dr. peterson, wasn't there also a victory for the president
